In this SPIE, Stratecast looks at the perceptual shifts that are driving demand for cloud networking. We consider the value of various service models that connect to the cloud. Finally, we evaluate AT&T’s NetBond Service—a comprehensive service that defines “network-enabled cloud.”

Introduction
The hottest cloud topic in the past few months has been network-cloud connectivity. Network service providers and interconnect providers seem to be tripping over each other as they forge partnerships with cloud service providers. The past two weeks alone have seen announcements from both AT&T and Verizon touting interconnection partnerships with Amazon Web Services, as well as AT&T’s expansion of its IBM partnership to include connectivity to the Softlayer infrastructure. And it’s not just network service providers looking to tap into the cloud; earlier this week, Equinix and Cisco announced they plan to jointly develop an enterprise hosted private cloud solution that connects multiple providers’ clouds, via the Equinix Cloud Exchange and Cisco Intercloud technologies.

The sudden interest in cloud connectivity is consistent with a shift in how enterprises view and use the cloud. Rather than choosing a cloud service to solve a particular workload dilemma, enterprise IT departments are more likely to develop a more holistic approach to overall business technology needs; weighing on-premises data center resources, as well as hosting and cloud options. The heterogeneous or hybrid environment forces the consideration of the network that connects the various compute and storage resources to one another, as well as to users who are as likely to access their applications via a mobile device and network as through the corporate Virtual Private Network (VPN). As enterprises increasingly place sensitive data and critical workloads into the cloud, they recognize that the network connection plays an essential role in delivering a secure and consistent cloud experience.
